會館爭取撥款‧福建義山沒收美化引費



(吉隆坡)雪蘭莪福建會館董事會聲明,他們并沒有委任個人或團體鳩收義山美化費用。


會長林忠強說,配合清明節的來臨,福建義山已展開一系列的義山整頓工作,除了斬草植樹外,還會把義山附近的環境提升,包括碑廊、骨灰塔及大伯公廟等計劃,而這些計劃的費用都是由該會館負責或爭取政府撥款。


有鑒于此,他說,之前廣東義山在美化期間,被“有心人”冒充進行籌募和鳩收美化費用,因有前車之鑒,該會館特地通過媒體向掃墓者闡明一切,避免引起不必要的麻煩。


“此外,本會館也希望掃墓者響應號召,不要在墳墓焚燒冥紙,更不要隨意丟棄垃圾,遵守告示牌的指示,盡量做到美化工作。”


戴炳基:將從林連玉墓園開始義山發展計劃明動土


雪蘭莪福建會館總務戴炳基說,美化工作屬于一系列整頓計劃之一,而目前的義山發展計劃將從族魂林連玉墓園開始,由該會館獻地,林連玉基金負責建筑費用,在墓園隔壁一塊逾8千方尺進行園藝設計,預計在星期日動土,竣工後更方便后人瞻仰。


此外,他指出,義山的克拉容路沿途,從林連玉墓園至福建總墳墓逾400尺的碑廊將會刻下福建人南下史,目前已經著手物色相關的人物,記載福建人在南洋的生活點滴,形成一條“歷史走廊”。


預計5年內竣工


他說,其余的計劃包括“抗日僑胞殉難紀念碑”、骨灰塔及附屬福建義山的大伯公廟重建計劃,都是該會館整頓福建義山的計劃,美輪美奐的義山提升工程預計5年內竣工。


“骨灰塔及大伯公廟處於策劃階段,目前還需解決附近19間木屋區搬遷的問題,而“抗日僑胞殉難紀念碑”則已經竣工,已經開放讓公眾瞻仰。”


出席者還包括行動黨武吉免登候任國會議員方貴倫、福建會館副會長葉榮和、董事黃亞峇及周其輝。


方貴倫:續爭取列文化遺產


方貴倫說,他會繼續在國會提呈,把福建義山、廣東義山及廣西義山逾439英畝地列為文化遺產,以永久保留,更會協助會館向吉隆坡市政局申請在義山附近植樹及重鋪道路等工作,減輕會館的負擔。

Hi YB Fong,

Congratulations on your recent victory.

My family, and perhaps others have been facing the same problem for the past few years, and we hope that you can assist/ help in this matter.

We go to church every Sunday morning, and we normally park at this parking space in Jalan Imbi - the one that's beside the Honda Showroom. At night, these lots are converted to open air hawker eateries. (Hope you know the exact location).

Everytime we park there on Sunday morning, we were 'forced' to pay RM1.00 to some unknown crooks who loiter around the area. We tried paying them less (not that we're stingy), but because we don't see the need to pay them at all, as they do not own the lots. Everytime we pay them RM0.50, they will demand for more. And we suspect these are drug addicts, and in a way, we're financing their habits.

If we don't pay, we fear that they will scratch our cars.

Please help. Thank you.
